We loved the Anglo-Saxon word Wyrd (pronounced weird) when we first stumbled across it. The term is used to describe the deep sense of personal destiny and connectivity to all those events and experiences around us, whether through fortune, fate or chance. Making our own spirits has always been our dream so ‘Wyrd’ captures our journey perfectly!
Mark and Kay are the creators of Wyrd Gin and make each batch by hand with care and passion.
Their journey started over 20 years ago during a trip to the Oban Distillery on one of their first holidays together. Clearly inspired by the experience, Mark declared ‘One day we should do something like this!’
The dream lay dormant for a number of years while they both pursued their careers, but it finally became a reality in 2018 when the right time came to set up their own distillery in the New Forest. Not quite on the same scale as Oban just yet, but they are still rather proud of the gin they have created.
With the help of old friends and new, offering advice and expertise, Wyrd Gin was launched and they can’t wait to share their handcrafted spirit with the gin lovers of the world.
